This is a long one. Prepare yourselves.

Not totally unconvinced Cecily von Ziegesar didn't author the tales coming out of Georgetown Prep and Holton-Arms in the summer of 1982. C'est lit!] Then the 27th happened and we realized we...

Episode 49 | Masculinity Identity Crisis

6/6/2018

"She founded the movement." Alana that is. She coined the portmanteau "incel" via her blog "Alana’s Involuntary Celibacy Project." The blog was centered around her struggles in her romantic life simply being found desirable. To her chagrin, the state of "involuntary celibacy" resonated with male internet dwellers more than her female peers and so sis was co-opted by the angry and the sexless. This episode we attempt to unpack the trend of discontent and disarray experienced by the mens...

We recorded this episode the day of or after the Royal Wedding, but then.. we went on vacation, so here we are! Long story short, the British Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was African American as all get out and we're convinced that was because of HARRY and not our good sis, Meghan daughter of the ever regal, radiant, cool Doria Ragland.

You've missed our cackles, we know. We're back with a #YeWhisper masquerading as a new episode. Between Donald Trump, Donald Glover, and Kanye Omari West we are mentally EXHAUSTED. And ya know we think that's Kanye's issue -- he's tired. He wants to be free of minority angst, of black angst! He wants the peace of mind of being a Calabasas dwelling white man! God bless! We know our best friend often lacks the capacity to articulate cogent thought and so we are here to do it for you. And...

Episode 46 of #TwoWiseJawns is available for your listening pleasure on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Play, TuneIn, and SoundCloud. The topic du jour is "the friend zone." We explore if it's actually a thing? If it's experienced by men or women more? Who's acting more entitled to whom? How does one land in it? How does one exit it? What is its inverse? And also how our dear, sweet co-host Shan has been accused of coyly placing all of the mens squarely in the thick of it! Shame her! Shun...

The heteros don't have the range and never have! Just kidding. But today we focus on the African American mens and womens; and their dating woes specifically. We particularly examine the subset of African American men who seem to prefer everything but black women, but especially white women. This episode was inspired by the ruminations of James Earl Jones circa 1960s and Harry Belafonte via Eartha Kitt circa 1950s and; though we didn't cover it in this episode, our good man Quincy Jones...

In Episode 16 from last fall the Two Wise Jawns predicted that Trump would win the 2016 presidential election due to an uprising of disgruntled white Americans feeling "identity-less" and a quiet subset of white Americans feeling a slow creep toward "minority" status. Sad!™ that our playful banter manifested into the socio-political clusterfcuk that has been 2017, but let's discuss. Now on the heels of the protests turned fatal riots at Charlottesville, VA, what does it all mean, this "Rise...
